6:14 am
surrounding the public works trucks that were trying to remove the material. they slashed the tires of one of those. then the confrontation became more physical when protesters laid themselves down in the path of a police wagon. the protesters claimed the officers were excessive in their force. sfpd praised the officers for the restraint they say they showed. one couple arrested for fighting with officers. my understanding is everyone has been released. cory cunningham is a spokesperson for occupy sf. i spoke with police. they say you're able to stay here because they retreated. is there a compromise. if they found another location, which they said they would try to do to camp there. >> i suppose we could look at that and go to the general assembly. it's ultimately up to the
6:15 am
general assembly to consensus. if we comply with one order, they order a new one five minutes later. we complied with that. if we do that, they're going want more. they're going to shut us down. that's just not right. they're trying to use their power in number to shut us down. >> reporter: why is it so important for you to be out here? it's early monday morning. you could be home asleep? >> well, no. i just moved back from manhattan. i was living with a friend. so i'm living here. so, why is it important, though? because for several years now i've understood that the 1% is in control of the world. they effectively own the world. and they run our government. it season for the people, by the people. we've forgotten that we have the authority. we have forgotten the constitution. and this country is made for us.

6:19 am

6:37 am
desperateness. >> when it comes to violence within the community, that's not a good trend either. the homicide rate sits at 34 for the year. as for yesterday's deadly officer-involved shooting. san jose police say they'll be releasing more information about that a little bit later this afternoon. jon? pg&e is doing testing in the south bay. they're testing a line that runs through east morgan hill, east of highway 101. it's part of the ongoing infrastructure inspection and manlt nans efforts. crews say you may here extremely lo noises and a white cloud that will look like an explosion. hard to to be alarmed when you see that. >> that would be scary to see.

6:46 am
[ cellphone rings ] cut! [ monica ] i have a small part in a big movie. i thought we'd be on location for 3 days, it's been 3 weeks. so, i used my citi simplicity card to pick up a few things. and i don't have to worry about a late fee. which is good... no! bigger! bigger! [ monica ] ...because i don't think
6:47 am
we're going anywhere for a while. [ male announcer ] write your story with the new citi simplicity card. no late fees. no penalty rate. no worries. get started at good morning, everyone. happy monday. >> mondays are pretty happy usually. no, they're not. we have a really good looking forecast for today. it's always happier when you guys wake up with us. the fog is not so bad over san francisco where it could be because we have an onshore flow that's pretty strong. the winds are working against the on jr. shore push. the fog is having a hard time settling in here in san francisco. but where you lose the wind, that's where the fog is the thickest. right now looking pretty good.
6:48 am
from oakland to fairfield, a nice breeze is keeping the fog from settling in. but you're going to find deep pockets. by 10:00 a.m. we lose all the cloud cover. everyone is going to get the sun as a result of the santa cruz. usually 75 today. 77 in oakland. so tomorrow you'll need the jacket to wednesday. that will drop it weres from the mid 80s today to low 70s on wednesday with really thick fog.
6:49 am
probably not getting out of the fog all day long on wednesday. in the city otherwise, warming back up just in time for the weekend. hey, mike. >> hey, christina. looking good for the morning commute as well. typical for the south bay. we're looking at slowing. you expect that up past 680 and 87. the airport area. and 85 through the area as well. so we'll see this bog down. and then into downtown for guadalupe parkway through san jose. now, this is better news as well. the earlier accident we're tracking northbound 880 just a couple of minutes ago. we had all lanes reported clear in the northbound direction. that should eliminate the distraction for the southbound side. still slow from mission boulevard south to 237 where the slowing happens. earlier than typical for that slowing.
6:50 am
then the earlier accident is still there. nothing short of confrontational overnight as protesters clash with police. bob redell is in san francisco with an update on the situation that's happening. >> yesterday many of the occupy sf protesters moved down the street from where they're allowed to be. the problem is that since this is a city park, they're not allowed to set up tents or camping equipment. during the day police asked them to take down the equipment. protesters refused. last night the police moved in and started to forcibly remove the tenting supplies.
6:51 am
protesters responded by surrounding the public works trucks. one of them slashed the tires. police were able to escort the vehicles out. the confrontation became much more physical when they laid down in front of the police wagon. sfpd praised the officers for the restraint they say they showed. five people arrested, including one for battery on an officer. our understanding is that everyone has since been released. >> we have no problem with them protesting. it's the right of freedom of speech. the issue is that they can't set up a camp site, they can't violate the laws we have in the books. >> i don't think we should give into them. >> they're not saying not to protest. >> i just think that it's
6:52 am
happened before. we could comply with one thing. five minutes later asking for something else. we keep complying. i don't think we should do that anymore. we're not going to attack them. we need to have more civilized opinions. >> police have retreated for the meantime. they're going to talk to the stig to figure out a compromise. i'm bob redell. jon and laura? >> it is 6:52. a san francisco campaign donation rule is proving to be hard to follow for some mayoral candidates. san francisco chronicle says of the 16 candidates for mayor have received contributions by contractors. that appears to violate the city's campaign donations law.
6:53 am
the campaign says even strict screening doesn't catch all the violations. a new study possiblily shining light on what could cause awe tiutisautism. researchers found a link between the disease and birthrate. preterm or babies are low birthrates are five times more likely to giged with autism than normal sized babies. the study followed 800 children at low birthrate. 5% were diagnosed with autism compared to 1% of the general public. this morning the search is on for the gunman who eached fire at a family party in the east bay, shooting four people, including a 9-year-old girl. christie smith joins us live from pittsburgh. i understand the family just moved into the neighborhood.
